8520 outdated

Dr. Karl Koelling, Amazon
13 February 2014
  • Summary: Outdated printer that is unsupported by HP and no longer made. HP suggest 7520 as newer version. I would not buy this printer again. It was a good printer back in its day. Has not been manufactured since 2005.

I give up

CI, Amazon
31 July 2012
  • Summary: If you have some creepy obsession with buying printer ink, this is the printer for you. If you don't use it, the expires. If you buy new ink, it doesn't recognize it and tells you to go back to the store and pay for another try. It has never printed a decent picture and the program is not the easiest to work with (will cut off edges of photos, etc.). It jams, doesn't accept certain sizes of paper (especially envelopes), and has proven useless on many an occasion.

  • Summary: It does not work, what more can I say. The paper pickup is defective. This is a common problem with this printer but would have been nice to know it was occuring. .

Hands Down the Worst Printer I Have Ever Used

traci smith, Amazon
9 February 2012
  • Summary: It's hard to know even where to start with this printer. *Will not print, even in black and white, when one color is out of ink *Will not print when ink is "expired" *Gives constant pop up notifications on screen and on the printer that ink is expired, soon to be expired, or low * Jams frequently

Be careful!!!!

Lee C. Garver, Amazon
31 January 2011
  • Summary: This printer displays both the very best with the very worst. The print quality and ease of use are superb. Hit the print button, and if the paper satisfactory loads, then you're off to the races with great looking prints. But the near constant paper jams, along with its inability to consistantly install HP Ultra Premium photo paper, eventually led me to destroy the printer in total frustration.

A dishonest deal

Joe Mamma "Sam", Amazon
26 October 2010
  • Summary: This is the worst printer I have ever seen. HP designed it so that you have to buy an expensive cartridge even if you haven't use them much, at a specified date. Pretty dishonest thing what they probably call an ingenious marketing. No more HP printers for me.

Extremely poor print paper feed!

Douglas S. Shearer "drdoug", Amazon
30 September 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this printer, hoping that it would AT LEAST work part of the time! I have yet, (in the 2 years that I have had this pathetic printer!) to print any photos employing the so-called "photo tray." It simply DOES NOT WORK!!! The print paper (H.P.'s highest quality and most expensive paper!) simply does not feed at all. And when you use the main tray....using anything but full sized paper..the message comes back that the paper is too small. All in all..
